Go Now, Doughty: Daily Mail And Sepp Blatter In Race Row

by | 18th, November 2011

“GO NOW BLATTER,” screams the Daily Mail’s back-page headline.

“Blatter dismissed racism as a problem on the football field, arguing that any such incident should be settled with a handshake at the end of the game.”

Blatter has to go. Just has to. As he said:

“‘I would deny it. There is no racism, there is maybe one of the players towards another, he has a word or a gesture which is not the correct one, but also the one who is affected by that… He should say that this is a game. We are in a game, and at the end of the game, we shake hands, and this can happen…And on the field of play sometimes you say something that is not very correct, but then at the end of the game, the game is over and you have the next game where you can behave better.”

Mail readers may also care to take view on Steve Doughty, who wrote

“Things may not be perfect but, at the end of the day, Gary, there are worse things to complain about. So, Mr Evra and Mr Ferdinand, I know you feel insulted. But perhaps in this case you could just put up with it and get on with the game.”

Steve Doughty wrote that in the…Daily Mail.

Tabloids and Fifa – which is the more cynical…? Now shake hand and when you hear the bell come out abusing…
